Compare our blog’s lameness against other examples of historical lamitude. The list should include Carrot Top, New Coke and Battlefield Earth.

I’m having a hard time differentiating.
Does it make me anti-intellectual if re Battlefield Earth I have neither read nor watched the movie? I could just never drum up the interest.
How lame? Let’s just say that Jeebus would just shrug and say “Sorry, outta my league.”

Great, now there’s an open thread (timing is everything). I’ve been away, and I’m getting caught up. Why has no one (especially John Cole) commented on the $4 million dollar law suit?
I wouldn’t go badmouthing Carrot Top. You seen the guns on him recently? He’d open a can of whoop ass on y’all.
And in my book, the scale of lameness really should start with “We Built This City”.
Duh. “… read the book nor watched the movie.” I’m fired from the commentary club. I’ve got to take the preview more seriously.
No, but it does mean your Theta levels are too high.
And yes, I know — “$4 million dollar[s]” contains a glaring redundancy.
I can’t compare it to Carrot Top because this blog shows no signs of steroid abuse. I never tried New Coke and BFE is right out because BJ may experience periods of lameness but it does not approach the black hole level of suck exhibited by the movie.
If this blog is a “1” then Kenny vs Spenny is into negative numbers.
am I the only one to find this amusing?
Then again I was talking with a co-worker who has an even darker sense of humore who said this can only be good PR for us because when ya think about it, we made Afghanistan safe enough for refugees to flee TO instead of from.
Not as a lame as the Youtube comments section.
Unless we get some of the illustrious trolls back. Then I think more observation might be necessary to determine this comparison.
Atlas Shrugged should de re-named Atlas Woofed His Cookies.
Ah, the youtube comments section…may I plug my daughter’s cuteness? We have a video of her saying her version of “I love you” which sounds exactly, but exactly, like “donuts”. We called it “I love you (donuts)”. Someone commented that they didn’t know why it was called “I love you (donuts)”. Heck, I’ll just link to it, it’s only 16 seconds, is this thread open enough for that?
Not as lame as a movie starring Fabio featuring the music of Kenny G and/or Zamfir.
Didn’t Michael D. like Starship Troopers? That’s a pretty abominable movie. Haven’t seen Battleship Earth.
This site’s commentors are so lame, the echo hasn’t faded since Darrell’s departing smackdown.
It’s who you are.
Alberto Gonzalez’s ’07 congressional testimony has got to have been the lamest thing ever. Balloon Juice is nowhere near that.
It may be somewhere near Waterworld levels, though.
Oh, and if Battlefield Earth was redone with Carrot Top and New Coke, it would still be better than BJ and The Wire.
I don’t recall Gonzalez ever giving testimony.
I like Carrot Top and I’m not ashamed to admit it (especially while posting under a ficticious name).
I see what you did there.
Not nearly as bad as ST II.
ST I woulda been better if they woulda shown Denise’s funbags instead of Dina’s.
As Demi would agree, FAU’s most famous alumi. Which is really disturbing, of course.
What about Crystal Pepsi, Neo-Geo, Tupac Shakur’s posthumous releases, LA Lights sneakers and “A Thousand Points Of Light?”
Those were all pretty lame.
As for lame movies, Anaconda was egregiously bad.
You’re not nearly as lame as any Irwin Allen production.
In contrast, “Lost in Space” looks positively clairvoyent compared to Rupert Murdoch’s lapdog, smilin’ Billy Kristol.
Does “it” refer to AG or BJ? In any case, Waterworld cannot be considered lame. Highly amusing and/or annoying, yes. Lame, no.
Yeah, Jen, it does sound like she’s saying “donuts”, so it’s not just you.
Angry people who have nothing better to do than come to a site and bitch and moan about the proprietors and the commentors — now THAT’s lame. There’s only so much time in a day, so why spend so much of it reading that which you despise?
Jesus! That’s off the scale!
Good God, son, did you just dis SNK on teh intarlulz? That’s more egregious than defending Microsoft.
I suggest taking a vacation in the Congo for a while.
This might explain some of our blog’s lameness, but I actually saw Carrot Top here at the University, and he was pretty god damned funny and the crowd loved him.
It’s not as lame as Rudy’s campaign, but Lamer than Ron Paul’s. That MoFo has a blimp. Blimp > Hot Air Balloon.
To the Fabio/Kenny G extravaganza, add Thomas Kincade as Art Director.
Ooohhhhh…I hope you’re intentionally trolling. Starship Troopers is an awesome film. It has lots of things blowing up and a…message and stuff*. In fact, I referenced it justt he other day in a political argument (another site) about health care.
You see, in Heinlein’s future, you only get full citizenship if you serve in the military. I noticed a parallel between this and the way our soldiers today can have quality socialized medicine, but we cannot.
*It also has nudity, blood and guts everywhere, brain-sucking and gratuitous Michael Ironsides.
Damn antecedents. It = BJ….wait Balloon Juice.
And Waterworld exhibits middling, some would say mediocre, levels of lame, similar to the Super Mario Brothers movie. It’s groan inducing and painful, and embarrassing for the parties involved, but not career killing.
Heaven’s Gate OTOH, killed Michael Cimino’s career and United Artists with its lameness.
Wow. Cats lying with dogs. It’s raining frogs. Apocalypse is nigh.

This is one of the sanest statements ever posted here.
Since someone brought up the respective lameness of Paul’s and Rudy!’s campaigns, I would like to present the following:
And don’t forget the strange parallel wherein our resident military man, Cassidy, has an overblown superiority complex over the inferior civilians that pay his salary.
This year’s Republican field is lamer than a thalidomide elephant.
Lamer than John Cole’s blog:

People that think Donald Trump is more than just a pre-ordained real-estate investor.

Yeah, but at least Chipotle in DC and New York uses organic food.
It’s certainly not as lame as my sex life.
I still can’t figure out why functionally intelligent people are still insisting he’s only capable of operating on the left-right axis when his entire campaign is about not operating on it.
Obama: “I don’t believe in Left or Right”
Others: “Therefore you’re a centrist!”
BTW – kos “unendorsed” Obama yesterday.
I agree, I never would have thunk it, but perhaps Dennis knows/sees something we don’t?
So would Chimpy be a full citizen or not?
His boss would not, cuz he had “other priorities.”
Kos is a sad sad place where only the people of very little intellect and very large axes to grind go. I like to think of them as Dwarves from Lord of the Rings: dangerous, but mostly there for comic relief.
Only Alabama citizenship. And he would deserve every bit of them, and they him.
There isn’t a yawn big enough to fully demonstrate my response to this “news”….
Ben Stiller’s Heartbreak Kid was painfully lame, but I guess it was saved from terminal lameness by the jellyfish/ring piercing scene. I think I blew soda outa my nose.
But, still lame lame lame. I had to stop dating the guy that took me to that movie–it was his second chance at a movie, and his first was Good Luck Chuck. Arg. How do movies *get* that lame????
Just say no to lame movies and men who think they would work on a date.

TPM is reporting that Ron Paul may finish third in Iowa. (Ahead of Rudy!) So whose head explodes first? Someone at Fox? Red State? Where?
I say we start a pool. Damn! I can’t wait to read the news Friday morning.
But, it’s West Virginia. (Don’t lash out at me, this is protected speech).
I have tried to think of the lamest thing I can come up with. So far this is what I have:
The Wire (again, protected speech)

Got any new “loofah” stories?
“Lamest car – A Geo Metro with sport rims.
Don’t bother to lock it, no one will steal it.”
Wrong! Some people will steal anything — just look at the 2000 election!
Because the meme that bipartisanship is an inherent good, that you can avoid making a choice between the parties and find common ground, is in this day and age itself a right-wing meme. The middle ground between center/center-right (Democrats) and batshit crazy (Republicans) is old fashioned right-wing extremism.
Giving succor to those who would blow up Social Security by talking of fake crisis is right wing extremism.
Universal health without universality is right wing extremism.
Blaming Democratic losses on the party being too liberal when it’s more conservative than Nixon’s Republican party is right wing extremism.
Getting “freedom frostbite” campaigning in Iowa for Ron Paul over Christmas….
But I am glad. I have a soft spot for him since I saw his blimp.
That cuts deep. Real deep.
Just because Bill was/is a pompous ASS with the Kos people, that doesn’t make them above reproach or even enlightened. That’s like arguing, “Well, the dog wouldn’t eat his own shit, so I’m sure we’ll find it mmm-mmm Goood!”
Are you in WV, John? Planning a trip to Winterplace later this month, chosen for its mutual convenience. Is the skiing any good there?
Speaking of BillO. isn’t the opposite of “secular progressive” “religious regressive?”

I think a guy with a broken foot is pretty lame
This place got lamer when it added Michael. I don’t see the need for the pseudo-republican dumbass responding to argument with ad hominem and bluster. His only saving grace to me is the way he posts environmental/tech threads, but he only does it for attention.
No. The opposite of “secular progressive” is “infernal fool”.
Surely you aren’t making the argument that popularity is equal to quality and veracity, are you? I mean, how many pageviews does youporn.com get in a day???
Flame wars over early 90’s computer technology…lame….do not want….

A bunch of people in my computer science department know the founder of howstuffworks.com; he got an M.S. here and was an adjunct for a few years (probably still is). The latest news is that he’s sold his company for $250 million. Who’d have thought?

I’ll wager more than one person laughed at him, and now he’s laughing all the way to . . . well, you know.
I’m going to make you a punch-y of lambic and champagne, just for that.
Too bad Mr. “Republican Lite” has the most liberal voting record in the Senate among the frontrunners and brags about how bad he wants to “whoop” the other side.
Is it really that complex? No black man could run for president sounding like John Edwards. But Obama will smile in their faces and kneecap them when they’re not looking…and they’ll never see it coming.
What will Edwards do? Judging by his record, he’ll talk mad shit and fold when it’s time to put his money where his mouth is.
Partial lame list:
1) Sweatpants with large letters across the butt
2) ED drug commercials
3) People who worship Foucault
4) Using the word ‘patina’ to describe anything but a finish
5) The neoconservative view that democracy ‘just happens’
Someone might throw up in it.
The goon who brought up Dan Hill deserves a boot to the head for starting a train of thought that led to Debbie Gibson, and “You Light Up My Life”. I went through that in the 70’s damnit. Why has His Noodliness forsaken me?
/me repeat headpalm
Is it at all fathomable to people that left-right is a completely invented, relative scale, and serves no purpose beyond mapping the relationships beyond arguments?
If telling someone that something is right wing or left wing gets their blood pressure up, then they aren’t operating on a sensible wavelength.
I’m going to take a risk and posit that arguments against a policy should be based on empirical data, and not fuzzy perceptions on which way a car can turn.
I know this is groundbreaking, so I’ll give you a moment to take that in.
How can you diss Neo-Geo? If you don’t like Samurai Shodown, you are officially dumb.
Wow. Cats lying with dogs…
My 17-pound dog is trying to get the 10-pound Maine Coon cat to play “tug” with him. This is not the first time he has tried this, and it will not be the last. Maine Coon nominates Dog as the Lamest of All Lame Things.
Of course, she hasn’t read Jonah Goldberg’s book, which achieves depths of Lame-ness beyond even Marie Osmond’s performance on “Dancing with the Stars”.
Well, that’s nothing. How about Vikki Carr and “It Must Be Him?”
Now we’re talking some serious pull-fingernails-out-with pliers lame.
Fixed. I blame myself.
IIRC, it was public service that earned citizenship and military service was the quickest route. Sounds pretty ideal. Privileges are always more appreciated when you have to work for them a little.
Our HMO is so much better. Seriously, look at how little we get paid, compared to what we do….if it was easy or desirable, everyone would do it. That’s a benefit earned.
Wah, wah, wah…I don’t like civilians. Get a frickin’ helmet. And drop that “pay my salary” shit. The pendulum of giving swung to our side a long time ago. We don’t owe you shit.
What are you if you can’t spell it?
A bright ray of hope in the lameness
Oh and as far as Obama goes, seems to me hillary is getting a bit worried, now Obama != Osama, Obama == Bush/Republicans nice how that one came about. Of course universal health care doesn’t mean mandated health insurance ala mandated car insurance.
What are we going to do start fining people who don’t have insurance like we do those without car insurance? Maybe lock them up and make them criminals as well?
Of course there is the alternative John – Populism is great once I found it in ’04 – Edwards who was, yes, a trial lawyer making a heckuva lot of money not standing up for the little guy but for his law firm that took on these cases.
I do find it funny that in another time Hillary and Edwards would be on opposite sides of the court room, her defending the corporation and him suing it, yet here they are vying for the nomination by the same party. But we are the big tent, however this scary guy Obama who talks about *gasp* uniting America, kinda like who was it…oh John Kerry did in ’04 is bad.
Given what the polls are saying (that is Obama ahead of both edwards and Hillary) I am beginning to think maybe Iowans do know what they’re doing (though I disagreed with the ’04 choice) when it comes to the first primary.
And from the beast’s top list:
17. Hillary Clinton
Charges: Began in politics as a teenage Nixon supporter — that’s twisted. Moved on to corporate law, representing Wal-Mart and bravely defending Coca-Cola from disabled employees. Married out of ambition. Failed miserably as the first lady of health care. Has spent whole of senatorial career as a hawk and a panderer. Would have no shot at becoming president if she didn’t just happen to be married to one already.
Exhibit A: Has deftly avoided the flip-flopper label — by never, ever answering a question directly or committing to a position in the first place.
Sentence: Victim of vast right wing conspiracy to shove a brick up her ass.
You’re thinking of Debbie Boone – and that horrible song from 1978.
Debbie Gibson was a Pop Hottie from the 80’s.
This blog is the Ishtar of blogs.
We have a weiner!
>>Alberto Gonzalez’s ‘07 congressional testimony
>I don’t recall Gonzalez ever giving testimony.
I don’t recall Gonzalez.
And hey no bagging on NeoGeo, after all king of the monsters was fun!
This thread has me craving another “Crock Pot” thread.
Wow, I’m impressed by the amount of people here who even REMEMBER Neo-Geo.
It was Debbie Boone. You’re right, but there are times when I’m not ashamed to be wrong.
Hey Dregs, whatz up wichore blog last being updated in June?
“My 17-pound dog is trying to get the 10-pound Maine Coon cat to play “tug” with him.”
Dang, that’s a small Maine Coon. Our two (a sister and brother) — not yet full-grown — are 18 and 20 lbs., and the new dog weighs in at 22 lbs (at 6 mos, so he’ll grow about another 10 lbs). That said, the Coon cats do sort of lord it over the other cats and the dog. For feistiness, though, the Manx, at 7 lbs, stands up for herself pretty well, and is the most willing to play ‘chase me’ with the Corgi pup.
It’s going to be an interesting next year or so, as they work out their dominance issues.
Yes, that’s right. For those of you still not paying attention HILLARY CLINTON IS CONSERVATIVE! She’s just better at being conservative than Bush/DeLay/Frist/et al, because she’s not a third-generation spawn of a kleptocrat douchebag who bought her way in on day’s name (she’s first generation kleptocrat douchbag who married her way in on her husband’s name).
No matter what Rush or Hannity or Mathews or – hell, even Tom Brochaw – tells you, Hillary Clinton is a dyed-in-the-wool Republican. Just because the Republicans hate her, doesn’t make her policies any more liberal.
Navel lint. This thread.
I know, I need to get back on that but I usually come here and find it pretty well covered. Add to that the fact I get home and between feeding myself and rescuing my sanity by playing guild wars I am usually preoccupied. I used to be able to blog from work but they blocked it.
Partial nerd lame list:
1) Playing a paladin in DnD
2) Windows operating system
3) Not indenting code
4) Video game walkthroughs
5) Mathematics professors writing tests that only one person in the class is even able to finish
Dude NeoGeo was the shiznit. There’s even a hamburger joint near my place that has a mini-arcade inside and they have one!
They’re either just about to release, or already have released, the new King of Fighters. The Neo-geo legacy is still around
Ha! But how many people actually PLAYED a Paladin? They all wanted the exceptional fighting skill, but forgot that playing a Paladin didn’t just mean a Lawful Good Fighter. It was actually a very difficult class, and that’s why most DMs my, er “friend” knew, wouldn’t allow them. I mean, they just didn’t fit in with most groups. If…my friend…recalls correctly, you weren’t even allowed to have a thief and a Paladin in your group due to his code of ethics!
A friend of mine played a Paladin in my campaign as a hard-assed fundamentalist psychopath who had to be given written absolution by his priest for not killing party members of differing alignments/faiths. He stirred up more fun/shit than any other character I’d ever seen.
I’ve never seen so may Jack Palance fans in my life.
What’s DnD mean?
= I didn’t start dating until college.
It literally stands for Do Not Date, right?
OK, canuck, if I had played in a group with a guy like that, it would have been awesome. Instead, the paladin player I knew had a knight-in-shining-armor complex.
And Billy K, you are right! He didn’t fit in with the group! Our DM should have kicked him out, like your uh… friend.
In practice, if not in fact. Although, as a nerd girl, I had lots of offers from nerd boys. Pity I wasn’t interested in boys.
Cassidy is just jealous cause he never got any action from the hot goth chicks.
So the military gives the average American more than they give to the military? Is this in terms of dollars or magic ponies?
And who exactly does pay your salary, if not the American citizens you have so much scorn for? Do your checks from the Department of Defense? Where do they get their funding from?
John Cole really said it best:
And for the record Goth chicks are indeed, for the most part, extremely hot but what can I say I am biased.
Oh we had the answer for paladins, it was called Ravenloft. That or quick, brutal death at the hands of an NPC simply because other members of the party did want to kill him.
Awww, how cuuuuuuute. He doesn’t like civilians, but he wants to play with them on the googletubes. He’s just like a puppy that nips at your heels.
I had my answer too… his magical stuff kept disappearing… And who knows how? I mean it wasn’t like I was a thief or anything!?!
Remember Hopalong, “Don’t ask, don’t tell.”
Would you like to know more?
Lame: Sonic Drive-In commercials. I want mob hits on both of those couples who engage in those unfunny ‘conversations’ in the front seats of their cars while wolfing down greasy fried stuff and ice cream product.
Lame: Time to break out the election cliches. “Deciding the fate of the entire world”, “most important election of our time (well, since the 2006 elections, which were the most important elections of our time, not counting the 2004 elections, which were the most important elections of our time, except for the 2002 elections, etc, etc, etc)” and Wolfie managed to get both phrases out in one sentence this afternoon. Someone start a whisper campaign around the CNN newsroom that Blitz is really Mexican… maybe Dobbs will get wind of it, kidnap him, and drive him across the border.
A…friend of mine…played a pure Orc paladin who didn’t know he was a paladin.
The best thing about this character was that he could tell literal truths that everybody would take completely wrong. “Oh, the girl who saw all that? Yes, you said Morque, take care of her…so Morque took REALLY good care of her. She won’t be back.”
Morque had arranged for her to go to school out of the city. But when an eight-foot-tall orc says that to your character, that’s certainly not what your character expects.
Jen – she’s adorable, and it does sound like donuts!
Hillary Clinton certainly is a conservative, way more than her supporters would ever allow themselves to acknowledge. In fact, I shut up someone rarin’ up for a diatribe they were sure I’d feel the need to defend the other side of by saying, “yeah, she’s a right wing nutcase…. but, you were saying?” Snicker.
Ah, this year is certainly starting out well. Michigan proved that dynasty and spirit trump hype and hyperbole. Despite the pain of watching them repeatedly try to give the game back to Florida (heSUS h. anthony carter on a pogo stick!) it was a win worthy of the long, long walk down the beach on a twisted knee, sprained ankle and toe, even, to get to Tequila Willy’s, the only bar on the bay with a working satellite receiver.
Holy crap! That was my favorite module! My friend, etc…
I don’t want to do anything to encourage either one of those two gasbags.
Oh those were the best. Have a thief in the party who was NG or CG so that even the paladin’s super alignment sniffer malfunctioned and chaos ensues.
I had the original, softcover laying around somewhere. They re-did it in hard cover for 3.5 edition which I was so happy to find. However I am not talking the module, I meant the campaign setting.
It was the ultimate in gothic horror with barovia at the center and it was the demi-plane of dread. From the lich Azalin’s province to one for Lord Soth from Dragonlance as well as a frankenstein province, a province for a mummy lord, one for a were-wolf. That campaign setting, for sheer atmosphere was the one of the very few good things to come out of the steaming shitpile that was AD&D 2nd edition.
You played the orc admit it.
My favorite character was how I got my nickname of Dreggas, he was none too nice…to put it mildly. However my one friends sister had one of the more amusing characters in our campaigns, a dwarven warrior who was CE and a were-badger to boot. In other words the ‘tude was all in the size.
I don’t do gloom cookies. All that angst ridden moping was annoying. Punks and skaters are the way to go.
Blah, blah, blah…I’m thinking someone needs a swimming lesson.
OMG, it’s the Incredible Mr. Limpett
Ya know, I don’t know many “gloom cookies” maybe you’re thinkin of emo chicks and yeah, there’s a group I just don’t get. I’ve run the gauntlet and honestly it’s the goth chicks that do it for me. Then again I am pierced, painted, and quite happily depraved enough that if I wind up bleeing a little it’s a feature, not a bug.
having tea are we?
What makes you think that?
My..uhh…friend had a lot of fun with this character. He could, of course, bring light (seeing as how he was a paladin and all, you know.) But seeing that he was an Orc, he viewed this ability as a curse, not a blessing. Similarly, his ability to dispel evil had made him a pariah in his original tribe.
And let’s not get into his odd affection for bunnies. One Did Not Serve Morque rabbit stew. It Was Not Done.
Thanks, Tamsyn, I think she’s adorable too. And my boy, too, but he doesn’t do as many cute toddler things anymore.
And a very large (rescue) Papillon. Demon Kishkan is not, to say the least, pedigreed — but she has all the Trademarks of the breed, including the ear-tufts as well as the attitude issues. Here in the Northeast, the shelters are full of randombred ‘Maine Coons’, many of them larger than Kishkan but nowhere near the size your pedigreed housemates have been bred to. (Obviously the MC genes confer some kind of selective advantage in this environment.) We are the Demon’s third family, that we know of; we inherited her from friends who were moving to Europe ‘temporarily’ six years ago. But when she’d chosen those friends to adopt by force of will (they ‘didn’t like’ cats but she kept darting into their house whenever they opened a door or window), she’d already been neutered, presumably by a human family she found unworthy of her talents. She does not consider us worthy, either, but during her occasional prohibited excursions around the neighborhood (there are too many predators in this urban-industrial-highway area, including foxes, racoons, and 18-wheelers) she’s apparently been unable to find a more promising pack of
suckersservants. She even tried bribing the two nice guys who spent a week this summer replacing our exterior doors, but dead voles just don’t get enough respect in today’s economy. So she continues to lord it over the other two cats, ignores the girl dog (Buta Hime Sama), and uses the boy dog (Zevon) as a combination exercise device and stooge (she uses his weight to help her force open closed doors, for instance). She doesn’t mind playing tag with Zevon, if there’s nothing more interesting going on, but the hopeful way he prances up to her holding a drool-soaked sock — that’s just gross, there is NO WAY she would touch that thing!
I will pet him and love him and squeeze him and call him george!
In my experience with pure bread maine coons the females are a lot smaller than the males. We had 2 one male (a freaking ox of a cat) and a female. The female was definitely smaller.
pure bred, not bread, can’t bake them…or maybe you can…
The Other Steve
The military hasn’t been relevant since my uncle came home from Okinawa on a C-47 transport.
We get a thread discussing lameness and up pops Cassidey for the first time since John C opened a can O’ WhoopAss on him last week.
Isn’t it ironic?
If that’s your definition of whoop-ass, then you really are a pansy. Seriously, please tell me you don’t have any children needing to learn how to be masculine from you. That’d just be cruel.
What you really saw was internet bluster and machismo from someone safe and secure in the knowledge they’d never have to back it up. It’s easy to make threats when you know your bluff won’t be called.
Speaking of lame and ironic, you still need a name change. I don’t think your IQ is 2x’s anything. So far my kids can put up a more coherent argument.
Btw, I was visiting family, a much higher priority than witnessing your mental excrement.
A self-responding post. Well done, Cassidy.
